The use of maize as an indicator crop and in the reclamation of farm land ladden with heavy metals as a result of crude oil pollution


, : The use of maize as an indicator crop and in the reclamation of farm land ladden with heavy metals as a result of crude oil pollution. Discovery and Innovation 17(3-4): 180-185

Environmental pollution associated with the exploitation of minerals (oil, columbite and coal) in Nigeria had led to the destruction of farm lands while rivers and ponds which served as both source of drinkable water and fishing grounds are severally polluted, killing most of the aquatic life.
